G3: Getting Girls in the Game

Unlocking the Potential of Every Girl Through The Power of Basketball

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Our team has responded to a call from the City of Boston to get urban female youth more actively engaged in and have equal access to sport programming. By following our global mission of educating and inspiring at-risk youth through basketball, we have partnered with Boston Public and Charter schools to launch Getting Girls in the Game, a free sport-for-development program open to all Boston inner city girls. G3 enrolls elementary through high school girls. 

PROGRAM GOAL:

The primary goal of G3 Boston is to provide a safe, supportive, sport-based response to barriers in girls' health, self-esteem, and access to regularly scheduled physical activity. 

HOW WE DO THIS:

We accomplish our goals by achieving the following four objectives:

  1. Provide Places of Play: Create a safe and supportive environment for structured sport and education programming.
  2. Increase Female Participation in Sport: Provide inactive girls with opportunities to be physically active in order to prevent disease and encourage health and education.
  3. Connect and Integrate Coach-Mentors and Youth: Equip young female leaders with the life skills and experience needed to positively impact themselves and their peers through the mentorship of Coaches, Educators, and the Boston Police Department.
  4. Educate and Empower: Increase nutritional knowledge, instill a sense of body positivity, support academic success and develop habits for healthy living and community engagement.
G3 encourages us to try something new...basketball can take you really far.

About

We are now competing in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU)!

G3 has added an AAU component to the program and we now have 3 competitive teams in the AAU circuit. Our teams compete in local weekend tournaments and allow the girls to showcase their abilities to college recruits, and play against other talent.

We are committed to doing AAU the right way.  Our teams not only compete in tournaments, they attend nutrition classes, tutoring sessions, and college visits. We believe in a holistic approach to developing great students, great athletes and great people.
